House of Cards season 3 confirmed for Netflix but no word on a release date
Third season of political drama could arrive on Netflix in 2015
Not one to do commissioning by halves, Netflix has commissioned House of Cards season 3 before season 2 has even aired.
The streaming service turned content producer has always had supreme confidence in the series, initially ordering two seasons of the show before the world had even seen the pilot.
"We start shooting season three soon," actress Robin Write (Claire Underwood) told reporters in New York on Tuesday, ahead of the second season's arrival on 14 February.
The next set of episodes are to be made available all in one go, seeing Kevin Spacey's devious congressman Frank Underwood close in on the White House as reporter Zoe Barnes tries to take him down.
House of Cards became the first online-only show to win an Emmy last year, with David Fincher taking home the best directing award.
Netflix has a host of other original shows coming later in the year, including a second season of Orange Is The New Black, a cartoon about a whiskey-drinking horse starring Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul and a series from the Wachowskis. There's more on those and other new commissions here.
